Braden DeMartin, 22, was speeding in his $50,000 Porsche boxter with his friend, 23-year-old Daniel Foley by his side when a fun ride quickly degenerated into a tragedy. The sports car hit a center median, struck an embankment and rammed into the second floor of a commercial building in New Jersey more than 15 feet above ground. The impact killed both of them.
Foley’s girlfriend posted on Facebook: ‘I loved you with every atom and molecule that make up my body. I will always love you. Our relationship was one of the greatest love stories I will remember. Thank you for being in my life and thank you for showing me how much I could love someone.’
She continued: ‘Although we went out separate ways a little bit ago I will always be grateful for you, for the laughs and lessons we had, for every touch we shared and I will always love you.
‘I’m sick to my stomach writing this and I wish this was all just a bad dream. I’m speechless and I wish I had more to say, I do but I can’t seem to put the right ones together. Praying for your family. I wish I could have seen you one last time. I wish this wasn’t real. Rest softly and peacefully sweet boy.’
